The new FARO Focus mobile mapping kit provides access to the technology of mobile mapping for every FARO Focus 3D user.
As a low cost do-it-yourself solution, the mobile mapping kit offers an affordable, efficient and precise tool to all users who want to explore the world of mobile mapping.
After the first presentation of the do-it-yourself mobile mapping concept at the Faro user meeting in Strasbourg (2013) the development and research has continued and the idea has evolved into a unique solution. The mobile mapping kit uses a cost effective and high precision Applanix AP15 (Inertial Navigation System) and includes a free to use plugin app for FARO SCENE.
With the new Helical app it is possible to merge the vehicles trajectory with the helical scan data directly in SCENE. Also calibration procedures have been developed that can be performed easily by the system operator at any time. This ensures that the FARO Laser Scanner can be detached whenever needed so that there is no permanent installation required. This allows the user to operate his scanner in all modes and therefore to maximize the benefits of a FARO laser scanner. [Read more ...]
During the 3D Documentation Conference in Andechs the participants are given the opportunity to visit the 3D exhibition in an designated area at the Abbey and meet FARO’s 3rd party partners, who showcase their latest 3D Documentation products.
This mornings highlight: 3D Documentation and laser scanning in Law Enforcement.
David Dustin, a US forensic expert from Dustin production presented this morning in the Andechs Abbey the usage of 3D laser scanning for many kinds of law enforcement applications. Amazing presentation!
The Award Ceremony for the best idea about the future of laser scanning (developed during the teambuilding) took place at the Florianstadl in Andechs. Below you’ll find the best impressions from the evening event.
Yesterday’s impressions from the workshops and brainSTORMING at FARO’s 3D Documentation Conference in Andechs – from the Middle Ages into the bright future of 3D laser scanning…
The fourth European 3D Documentation Conference takes place in a beautiful scenery in Bavaria. Seen from miles around atop Holy Mountain above the eastern bank of Ammer Lake, Andechs Monastery is the oldest pilgrimage church in Bavaria and since 1850, an asset of the Benedictine monastery, St. Boniface, in Munich.
The participants of FARO’s User Meeting noticeably enjoy the conference at the Monastery and its amazing surroundings.
Between the workshops the participants of the 3D User Conference have the chance to network and exchange knowledge and experience.
In the afternoon workshops of our 3D User Meeting, participants go into detail choosing from a range of themes around architecture, mobile mapping, factory design and software. Stay tuned for more in-depth content later in the day.
Our morning at the Abbey was full of exciting stuff with 3 power speeches in the Florianstadl featuring industry experts on:
• Large 3D Scan Documentation in Retail
• Laser Scanning Gomantong Cave: creation of the world’s most complex photorealistic cave model
• An Airbus experience: 3D modelling in part environment
In the coming 2 days we will provide you with the latest from the world of 3D documentation and laser scanning technology.
The conferece started this morning with the industry and FARO news by Managing Director Ralf Drews. Then we kicked-off with keynote Bernd Becker, Chief Technology Strategist about the latest 3D Documentation technology news.
